Okay, I'm in the preliminary design phases for this extract recipe and I have never developed my own recipe from scratch so I need all the advice I can get. Here's what I have so far:
4lbs Munton's Light DME
3lbs Munton's Amber DME
1/2lb Crystal 60
1/2lb Pale Malt 2-row
1oz Roasted Barley
1.5 oz amarillo for 60 min
1 oz amarillo for 15 min
1 oz amarillo for 1 min
My only thought is that I may want to increase the initial hops to 2 oz but I'm not a huge hop-head so I don't know.
Also, the specialty grains were taken from a clone recipe and I don't know what the benefit of the 2-row is since I thought that had to be mashed?
Anyway, all recommendations are appreciated. My favorite IPAs are Harpoon's and DFH 60 Minute.
